Report: Pebble Beach Best of Show Goes to 1937 Horch


The prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Best of Show award went to the 1937 Horch 853 Voll & Ruhrbeck Sport Cabriolet. The car belongs to Bob Lee, who won the award in 2006 with a 1931 Daimler Double Six Corsica Drophead Coupe.

The Horch company was started in Germany in 1899 by August Horch, although Horch the auto manufacturer didn’t start until 1909. 

Horch was later unified with three other auto makers (Audi, DKW and Wanderer) to form Auto Union, or what is today known as Audi. In fact, Horch is the Latin translation of Horch.

No doubt the car would win. Told my wife when I saw it today. Very elegant, long and chrome everywhere.
